The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (3/24/10) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's nationally recognized best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by Cristal, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

OK, Black Tuesday is over and we're still alive and breathing (plus, it's Hump Day). Take a deep breath. Soooo...yesterday wasn't such a good day for the Mountaineers: Truck goes down with a broken foot and the women's season came to an abrupt halt. First of all, Huggs isn't panicking and I'll try to take my cue from him. On the other note, the women had a wonderful season and the whole team should be back next year and perhaps be capable of even more. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. Don't forget to cast your votes. Time to jump in...
